Penzu is a diary and personal journal that is focused on privacy. With a unique and compelling user experience, it makes writing online as easy and intuitive as writing on a pad of paper.


Your journal and your thoughts aren’t always meant to be shared — some things are supposed to be private! Use Penzu to jot down whatever you want. Then lock your journal with a password (or even encryption) so no one can read it but you! Furthermore, you can lock the entire app with a PIN in the event that someone gets access to your mobile device.


Unlike other journal apps, Penzu has a web-based counterpart. So you can access your journals and diary from any web browser and other devices. Penzu is constantly being updated and improved so that the writing experience is effortless and reliable.


This app is free to download but requires a free Penzu account in order to start writing.

Upgrading to Penzu Pro is available for a small monthly or yearly subscription. Your subscription will auto-renew unless you cancel manually. Monthly subscriptions are $4.99 USD and renew every month. Yearly subscriptions are $19.99 USD and renew every year.

parfaitement adapté

Je tiens un journal depuis des années et cest vraiment ce quil me fallait pour continuer en 2011. Ça fait quelques mois que je lutilise avec un compte pro et pour moi cest précieux bravo:-)

Bogue depuis la nouvelle MAJ!

Tous est dans le titre, inutilisable depuis......

Entries dates on mobile version?!?!

Could you please classify the journal entries by event date? Now it´s by modification date, which is annoying to retrace timeline... Would also be very useful to be able to modify the date when youre writing on the pad.

Excellente application

Excellente application. Jen suis vraiment très satisfaite. La cinquième étoile sera acquise quand il y aura la possibilité de mettre lapplication en français

Muito bom , substitui um caderno , uso na faculdade ameeeeeei



Gosto de experimentar a fundo os aplicativos, e esse, me fez perder um belo diário... Ou melhor, o que ele oferece gratuito é demasiadamente pouco e o valor da assinatura anual custa alto, dentro da perspectiva Custo-Benefício. Infelizmente vocês querem cobrar em demasia e se quer oferecem um NOTEBOOK estável, sem assinatura... O Capitalismo e exploração necessitam de um limite mínimo, não acham? Deixo a dica de aplicativos excelentes, com suporte On-line e recursos superiores, como o Moleskine, PAPERDESK, mas o melhor, creiam, nem é muito mencionado: PHATPAD. Mas para quem gosta de algo similar ao Penzu, o Ijournal é bem superior. Fica a dica...

Its good, but has some inconsistencies

You can access notes both in web and mobile, but the writing tools are not the same for different platforms. You cant, for example, change color, or highlight bits of text in the mobile, but you can in the browser, which is quite frustrating because I use 90% at the iPhone.
